The Rapture’s Luke Jenner has shared a new single called “If There Is a God”, taken from his forthcoming new solo album, entitled “1”, set to drop in July. The superb new track comes with a beautiful papercraft stop-motion video, which was directed by Tara Relax. Speaking about the track, Luke Jenner says: “‘If There is a God’ is part of this meditation on life and death, love and ideas, about who we are as people and beings. It’s a little Beach Boys and a little Krautrock and a little bit whimsy. Who the fuck knows what happens next in this life?”

Luke Jenner’s “1” LP will finally drop on July 24th via Manono Records. Pre-order it here.

The Rapture’s Luke Jenner is back with his new solo album, entitled “1”. Before it drops in May, we’re treated to the record’s first single, a wonderful track called “You’re Not Alone”, an invitation to more. The single arrives with a video with illustration by Tara Relax.

The 10-track record is commanding yet generous in its vision. It follows Jenner’s personal history – from the trauma of child abuse in his family to the happiness he seeks in his own family now and in the community of survivors that sustain him – within the context of rock history and the music that sustained him there as well. In Luke Jenner’s own words: “I made this record to bring together my family, friends and music into one thing. Not to hurt anyone, not to call anyone out. But simply to have a conversation with those who want to have a conversation with me.”

Here we go. Get your Monday groove on with “Swing That Body”, one of our favorite tracks from Jacques Renault’s long-awaited debut album “Zentrum” that has been on repeat mode for a while now. The track sees the NYC producer and master of disco edits teaming up with Luke Jenner, formerly of The Rapture, for an infectious dancefloor heater. It’s one of the many collaborative tracks on the record which also features guest appearances from The Emperor Machine, Teddy Stuart, one half of A/Jus/Ted, Mark Verbos, and his Runaway partner-in-crime Marcos Cabral. The “Zentrum” LP is out now on the ever-excellent Let’s Play House, which he runs alongside Nik Mercer. It’s definitely worth the wait.
